Dracomicros hospes ("strange little dragon") is a 9-12 inches (20-23 centimeters) long specie of flying lizard that is found on Skull Island. The animal is described in the book "The World of Kong: A Natural History of Skull Island" (2005).

Dracomicros is a horned, viviparous, gliding agamid from the uplands of Skull Island. This large flying lizards made their homes in the upland cliffs above the jungle. Camouflage was their principal defense. Most of the time their bright, barred wings were folded discreetly at their sides. When threatened, they would initially freeze, but if danger persisted, their wings would spring open, startling the predator (like a Malevolusaurus) and buying the lizard a moment to jump and glide away to safety. Using the elevation afforded by cliffs and taking advantage of gusts, they could sometimes glide several hundred feet. Wing flashing was also employed among Dracomicros's to intimidate rivals and attract mates. The little horned males faced off on prominent boulders, bobbing their heads and flashing their wings in elaborate dances. Females gave birth to live young, as many as six at a time, which were able to fend for themselves immediately. Birth was timed to a lunar phase to ensure the best possible chance for the young to survive. At certain times of year the rocks teamed with tiny Dracomicros's.
